Hi LUGers,
	Well Ron from BCLUG logged in first and was
still not there when I signed in at 10:45 but came
along a few minutes later.
	At 11 AM Ken S came along.
	A few minutes later Victor showed up and Aaron.
	About half way thru the meeting I checked for
email and John S. was asking where we were so I replied
and he joined us after 1230 briefly

	Ken has been using the Windows Subsystem for Linux
lately setting it up to demo to a Windows user who wants
to use Linux but still needs Windows.  It has been
improved lately in regards to graphics as well.

	The attachment is a text conversion of Aaron's
meeting notes and problems.

	Now after Ken's discussion of the WSL Victor
began to ask questions about the proper use of grep
and regrex. Victor is trying to learn Linux but of
course he finds the options and switches difficult
Ken was very helpful and pulled up pages that addressed
the topic.
         I belive Ron of BCLUG joined that discussion
but am unsure on that point.

	When John came along he states that he had
tried a variant spelling and when he correct the URL
had gotten to us without problems.  He shared the
Web site he had used when he ran for a elective
position in his city.

	Ken left before 1230 as is usual.
Shortly after Ken left John S showed up.

Victor left early as well and when I left both
Aaron and Ron were there but running blank screens

	At 1:05 PM I left but unfortunately I had
a lot to do in the kitchen and it wore me out
so that I weoke uip today stiff and sore and
spent most of the day in bed.

	Which is why I am getting this out
so late at night.  Any further notes one the
the defiency my reporting should detail my
error of fact and omissions.

Hi Bobbie,

Before (or while) you write yesterday's Meeting notes, thought I'd contribute my own take on this below.
1. Joined the Jit.si Meet session https://meet.jit.si/sf-lug.org a bit before 11:30am, left for ~1/4hr in the middle, and returned until the ~1pm end of the meeting.
2. Had as-yet-unresolved issues with my microphone throughout the online meeting, and a partially-resolved speakers issue for approx. the latter third of the meeting.
3a. Might have been the only participant (or among the few) to not clearly understand Victor's question about 'grep' and bash-script test statements.
3b. Iirc, Victor's bash question might have had something to do with e.g., single quotes ' ', double quotes " ", the - symbol (range 1-n indicator ? negative sign -n ? something else?), the + symbol, [single square brackets], [[double square brackets]], {curly brackets}, shell substitution, ....etc
3c. Provided a link to the group that might have clarified both Victor's question and other participants' answers .... Unix and Linux Stack Exchange posting 'Bash test: what does "=~" do?' https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/340440/bash-test-what-does-do

All the best,

p.s., The Teflon Donald's outrageous statement on the U.S. Constitution
CNN's Trump calls for the termination of the Constitution in Truth Social post by Kristen Holmes

Exact text of original posting from https://truthsocial.com/@realDonaldTrump/posts/109449803240069864 ...
So, with the revelation of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party, do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution. Our great Founders did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!

===> Quick quick now.... save & make more backups of the timestamped posting's _exact_ text, so that we can make it slightly more difficult for the Teflon Donald to repudiate and/or spin the statement once his fervent GOP disciples weaponize their pro-Trump agendas immediately upon taking office in January!
